Lafayette Park Oak Trees

We are blessed with moss-kissed, fern-growing, branch-sprawling old Oak trees here in the South. These are true historical relics. I wonder what all they’ve seen throughout the years. Well, last weekend, one of these grand Oaks stood witness and¬†graced the backdrop of a memorable wedding between two soul mates, both of whom had waited just as long as I’d been married to have the same choice (16 years!). I’d say the trees were happy.

The Old Oak Tree

(Two images) Every Monday and Wednesday we drive by this huge old Oak tree in one of the oldest neighborhoods (Indianhead Acres) in Tallahassee, Florida. This is one of the trees that I hope to recreate in a drawing or painting. We are so very lucky to have quite an abundance of old Oak trees in our area. They are simply magnificent!

One of the many reasons I love living in the South: Magnolia trees and grand old Oak trees with Spanish moss!

The curves on these majestic old Southern Oak trees are so graceful. The first photo shows the curves of the tree against a building with curved windows. The second photo shows several Oak trees’ upper branches curving. Both of these grand trees are located in New Orleans, Louisiana.
